Brain Development Discovery Could Have Implications for Parkinson’s, Other Neurological Diseases
An inflammatory pathway that plays a key role in the proper removal of faulty cells during brain development could open new avenues for studying or treating neurological diseases, including Parkinson’s. The study, “AIM2 inflammasome surveillance of DNA damage shapes neurodevelopment,” was published in Nature. During normal development, cells in the brain grow rapidly; then about half of these newly-made cells ... read more
